Dizziness and instability are a common cause of disability with vestibular dysfunction often being involved and more importantly being found responsive to therapeutic intervention. This webinar will discuss the theoretical framework quantifying the robust inherent potential for healing and its clinical implications for lessening disability. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.
